This is about my journey to find a cure for the epileptic seizures that continue to torment me. The knowledge I gained and am relaying to you are specific on how to deal with epilepsy. However, I feel that the life patterns formed and the habits I created from those experiences will apply to a broad range of people fighting the daily battles of debilitating disease and physical disabilities. In fact, much of the information will apply to those in all walks of life wanting to improve themselves in the four areas I talk about.
My experience is my material. I’ve tried to be as correct as possible in regards to medical facts in my specific case though, this is not a medical book nor is it intended to replace the sound advice of the medical profession. It is meant as a guide to taking control of your life and to become a more balanced person in spite of the challenges you may be faced with.
Epilepsy is what you have, not what you are. You are not an epileptic. You are a person with epilepsy. Epilepsy is a part of your life, it is not your whole life. You are not different from other people in any major way except for the brief time you’re having a seizure. Other people may expect that having epilepsy makes you different but that’s their mistake. Given the chance you can probably live, work and function in the world just as well as anyone else. All that being said you still must deal with what you have.
